A safe (also called strongbox, coffer or kist) is a secure lockable box used for securing valuable objects against theft or damage.

The body and door may be cast from metal (such as steel) or formed out of plastic through blow molding. A less secure version (only suitable for petty cash) is usually called a cash-box.

Enclosed and safe within its central heart,
Nestles the seed perfection.”
